WHO guidelines for malaria

    Año de publicación: 2021

    The consolidated WHO Guidelines for malaria present all of the current WHO recommendations for malaria. These are the product of careful evaluation following standardized methods as part of the WHO normative processes [1]. WHO uses strictly defined processes to assess the quality, consistency and completeness of evidence to determine the strength of each recommendation. WHO malaria recommendations tend to be short, evidence-based statements. They are usually accompanied by supplementary statements which draw attention to contextual and implementation considerations that may influence the appropriateness and impact of a recommendation in different settings. Clearly distinguishing recommendations from their associated contextual considerations provides a degree of flexibility for national policy makers to adopt and adapt strategies which are most appropriate in their settings. This online platform and the associated PDF help to distinguish the formal recommendations from the supplementary statements. The Global Malaria Programme (GMP) will use this platform to produce “living guidelines” which can be updated more rapidly than printed documents following the availability of new evidence. Users can access the research evidence and evidence to decision tables that informed the recommendation by using the tabs below each recommendation. There is also a feedback tab where users are encouraged to provide input directly related to each intervention.

    The online platform contains links to other resources including guidance and information on:

    strategic use of information to drive impact; surveillance, monitoring and evaluation; operational manuals h
